About the Image(s)

This photo is from the same Splash meeting as one some month ago. It was well accepted on PJ exhibitions. Mohanan's photo last month has given me the first part of idea. The second part I've seen on one jurying of local exhibition also with a swimmer. So, here's the result.

Camera Panasonic FZ-50, built-in lens at 100 mm, ISO 100, F5, 1/1000.

Processing: crop to center the image, selection of the swimmer and some water in front, radial blur out of selection, spot correction on the border of radial blur, contrast improovement with levels and curves, everything in Photoshop Elements.

Great action shot. Extensive post processing is very effective in making an impressionistic image.   Posted: 03/10/2019 16:44:39

Great improvement of the original shot. I would like to see the shot cropped so the front walkway is not included in the blur. Good selection of an image to use this type of creative tool. It works well. Good job in your post processing.

Very good creative image. I liked the composition, color and sharpness of the subject. It will look better if you avoid the walkway in the foreground.   Posted: 03/17/2019 10:52:29

Beautiful unusual image of a swimmer in action. The radial blur is a perfect surround for her swimming. I especially like the colors blurring at the top of the image. Good choice of where to put the blur, leaving the swimmer and the water in front of her and dripping from her arms intact. I would remove the white reflections on her arm.   Posted: 03/20/2019 10:31:31
